Paratek Antenna Technology Will Make An Appearance In BlackBerry Z30!

Apart from the wider screen, the BlackBerry Z30 would debut the use of the Paratek Antenna Technology. This is something that is pretty new, especially in BlackBerry. But wait, what does this do?

The BlackBerry Paratek Antenna Technology refers to the number of proprietary advancements in antenna hardware and tuning technology that is aimed to improve performance especially in regions with low signal. The two key benefit that one can look forward to is faster data transfer rates and increased connectivity especially in places with poor network coverage.

If we look at Paratek, it actually uses its own version of barium strontium titanate, which is actually a thin-film dielectric ceramic that changes capacitance as voltage changes, to tune antennas. Their main goal was to improve the effectiveness of the phone’s antenna, to help it avoid dead spots, handle the growing amount of data that we want to use and minimize the whole family of “death grip” problems. Using the ParaScan, which is a 3- by 5-millimeter device that looks like a computer chip, it allows antennas to be tuned in very short time.

At least we know know that BlackBerry had something in mind for the company, after its acquisition in 2012.
